The Israel Defense Forces says one rocket launched from the Gaza Strip toward the southern city of Sderot and nearby towns has been intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system.

The Sderot municipality and Sdot Negev regional council say no damage was caused in the attack.

Footage from the area shows what appears to be an Iron Dome interceptor missile taking out the rocket.
